The Association of Family and Conciliation Courts (AFCC) is offering scholarships to its 44th Annual Conference, Children of Separation and Divorce: The Politics of Policy, Practice and Parenting at the Capital Hilton in Washington, DC. Twenty conference scholarships, including international scholarships with travel stipends, will be granted. Additionally, local conference scholarships will be offered to support professionals and graduate students in the conference host community and will be granted to persons living in that community.
AFCC’s 44th Annual Conference, May 30-June 2, 2007 will convene leading judges, mediators, lawyers, parenting coordinators, custody evaluators, court administrators, parent educators, researchers and more. AFCC conferences are unique because participants do not share a common profession, instead they share a strong commitment to benefit communities, empower families and promote a healthy future for children. The conference features nearly 70 sessions on the latest topics that impact children and families of separation and divorce and more than 150 presenters from Canada, Taiwan, United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, New Zealand and the United States.
AFCC must receive all scholarship applications by March 1, 2007. The scholarship application, conference brochure, online registration and more can be found on the AFCC Conferences page on the AFCC Web site at Link to More Information (last visted 1-25-07 NVS)
